So, here’s my dilemma: my venue will let me purchase champagne/sparkling wine through them wholesale, but they don’t provide glasses, servers, or any of that stuff. To cut down on the cost and coordination for a champagne toast, I’m thinking about doing something like this:
I love the Sophia Coppola wine in the pink cans, but, since those come to about $3-4 per can, they’re not really an option in my budget. Does anyone have any suggestions for a brand of champagne that offers a small bottle like above, that comes to $1-2 per bottle? Maybe I’m imagining a product that doesn’t exist. . .
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Very cute! $1-2/bottle sounds a little unrealistic, but its worth looking. I think the brand Freixenet (its a cava) has a split, and that’s a totally decent, pretty inexpensive 750ML bottle, you might look into that.

Those come out to like $3.19. The come in packs of 24 and with little tags with y’alls names & date.

Great ideas! I’ll see what my vendor says about those options. Since we’re having a laid-back wedding, I might be able to enlist the groomsmen to pour if it ends up being a better price to buy big bottles.

You can get glass champagne flutes from IKEA 6/$5. At the end of the wedding you can let guests take them, or you can sell them on craigslist to recoup some of your cost.
This would be cheaper than buying individual bottles. I’m sure you could enlist people to help pour.

@Over the Moon: I agree! They could serve as favors as well—two-in-one!

@Over the Moon: I like this idea. What about having a bottle on each table, iced, and then asking everyone to pop them at the same time? Could be really cool (unless someone loses an eye LOL)

@nyscpa2be: I like that idea!! Could be dangerous tho, and messy if a bunch of the bottles spray everywhere. But it would be cool to have them all pop at the same time!

@Benavis1489: Those are great and they don’t really pop. We live close to Korbel and swing over there for these little guys to use for various parties etc.

Same as previous posters, cheapest I saw on here was $2.99 a bottle.
Have you tried your local grocery store or liquor store? I bet you could cut a deal with a liquor store if you ordered enough.
